The Coblentz Society, a professional organization focused on fostering "the understanding and application of infrared spectroscopy," has awarded Bioengineering Prof. Rohit Bhargava the 2013 Craver Award. Since 2007, the award has been presented annually to recognize the work of scientists who "have made significant contributions in applied analytical vibrational spectroscopy."
Bhargava will receive the award and deliver the Craver Award Plenary Lecture in Applied Vibrational Spectroscopy at the Society's annual conference in Milwaukee in Fall 2013. His work in applied spectroscopy also recently earned him the 2012 Innovation Award from the Federation of Analytical Chemistry and Spectroscopy Societies.
